Class of 2018 Last Day

Here are some pics we snapped of the 8th grade class’ final day at Peace. The 7th Grade class hosted a special luncheon then performed skits of their favorite 8th grade class memories. Next, came the traditional High Five Run through all the other school students, followed by the signing of the shirts. For the first time in 10 years, rain moved us back into the gym to finish up. We love you eighth graders and we are excited to pray for you and follow you on your next journey.

8th Visits Cathedral

Our eighth graders spent their morning visiting and learning the history and significance of the St. Joseph’s Cathedral, Good Shepherd Chapel and St. Alphonsus. Afterward, they were able to have lunch at Centre Market and even spotted the art deco parking meter that Mrs. Thalman painted.

May Procession

It was a beautiful day to honor our Blessed Mother Mary for our May procession. An amazing celebration our students in 8th and 2nd grades cherish and all of our other students were excited about this year as we included everyone in presenting flowers to Mary, Queen of Peace!

Complex Machines in 8th Grade

Our Eighth graders presented their Complex Machines in Mrs. Schlanz’s science class. These are just a handful of their clever inventions.


Living Stations

we share our seventh and eighth graders’ presentation of Living Stations. This tradition is a special journey of faith for our whole school so together we can really experience the joy and the transforming power of Easter Sunday.


Our seventh and eighth grade celebrated the sacrament of Confirmation with Fr. Doug Ondeck, Msgr. Kevin Quirk and Bishop Michael Bransfield. May the Holy Spirit continue to guide you on your spiritual journey, and may you all continue to let others see Christ in You!

Celebrating Easter and Spring

Our eighth graders celebrated spring with their second grade Peace Pals by sharing two special crafts with them – Prayer Rocks to keep at their bedside and Jelly Bean Prayer – symbolizing the love Jesus has for each of us.

Visiting the WV Senate

Our 8th grade in the WV Senate Floor with Legislators Erikka Storch, Mike Ferro and Shawn Fluharty.
Senator Mike Maroney honored 8th grader Cooper Blair for representing WV at the USA Paralympics last summer! Not bad for a routine field trip. Lol. Champions By Design! Champions of PEACE!
